It would probably go into savings or maybe my vacation fund. Everyone will still eat and my kids can still go to college .$250 is a good deal on a great CPU and the performance uplift from a 2700x is going to be very nice. But it's impossible to vote fairly if you don't tell us what the down side is too. After all, if that $250 is earmarked for down payment on an engagement ring, for instance, then I'd vote no.
would be good arguments if he wasn't getting the 5800X for same price as a 3600....and $30-40 cheaper than a 5600x.The R5 3600 is faster for gaming, if that's all you are looking at this for. The 5600X would be a great option for that as well.
It appears that by looking at some quick reviews that the 5800X is between 1-40% faster (than 2700X) in a selection of various games. Synthetic benchmarks seem to be around 30%+ faster for both single and multithreaded runs. This is where the core count would become more important, but your qualifier is only gaming.
Since OP doesn't mention how/where he is getting what one can only assume is a super limited and used steal of a deal, it can't hurt to offer opinion on other possible options. Tech spot did a write up on this very thing and although the landscape was considerable different even a month ago when the article was written, they show a benchmark price of $350 for a used one, assuming you could find it.would be good arguments if he wasn't getting the 5800X for same price as a 3600....and $30-40 cheaper than a 5600x.
True enough, but anybody with a vacation fund is obviously a forward thinking sorta guy who I'd give credit for having figured out these 'facts-of-life' things himself.Since OP doesn't mention how/where he is getting...
